Which is stronger: blood ties or a battle-tested friendship?
It’s not easy being queen bee of an underworld abuzz with crooks and killers. Wielding my potent Ice and Stone elemental magic will only get me so far—my real secret is my tight-knit makeshift family, a motley crew of cops and criminals, dwarves and playboys. My foster brother Finnegan Lane is my right-hand man, but when his suddenly not-dead relative comes back into the picture, I’m the one on the outside looking in.
It’s funny how life works: one minute your best friend is rock-steady, and the next he’s doe-eyed and buying into this whole loving-relative routine to the point of ignoring you. I’d like to be happy for Finn, I really would. But all of my instincts are telling me that beneath the syrupy sweet demeanor and old-fashioned charm, this sudden interloper is planning something. The whole shtick leaves a bitter taste in my mouth. This person might have avoided the grave once, but I’ll put anyone who hurts Finn in the ground—for good.

Bitter Bite begins when someone from Finn's past comes back into their lives. This person claims to want to get to know Finn and be there for him, but Gin things they might be around for other ideas. When Finn starts to push Gin away it makes her more determined to try to protect him. But non of them would ever have guessed the plan they were twisted in. Bitter Bite was a great addition to this series. I adored this book. I loved getting to see a softer side of Finn, and also how he treated Gin at times. Although, I thought he was kind of a jerk sometimes, I still really enjoyed watching them together. Especially in the end! Now, I'm even more excited to read more in this series. Jennifer Estep has done it again with this one. It had the perfect blend of Gin's awesomeness along with a great plot line! I only have one question for this amazing author, Will Gin and Owen ever tie the knot? I'm totally curious about that! I can't wait for the next book!
